Europäische Governance und Städtepolitik Icon

European Governance and Urban Policy

Finding solutions, promoting exchange of experiences, shaping innovations, sharing knowledge.

In exchange with partners from politics, administration, and research, we develop concrete solutions for local and regional challenges, which can also be applied elsewhere. Exchange of know-how at European and international level enables us to make new knowledge available to our customers and members. Good governance, transparency, open government, and sustainability are the focus of our work. We always strive to set out on new and innovative paths.

Finanzwirtschaft Icon

Public Finance and Federalism

We develop forward-looking models to optimise the management and financing of public services within the multi-level system (federal government - provinces - municipalities). It is a matter of particular concern to us to further improve cooperation between the actors in federalism.

Priorities
  • System of Financial Equalization and Federalism
  • Transparent public finances
  • Financing and management of public services

Our studies are carried out on behalf of the federal government, the provinces and municipalities as well as other key actors, such as the Association of Austrian Towns and Cities or the Vienna Chamber of Labour. This is supplemented by projects within the framework of research funding.
